The chief commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says the entire Israel is within the range of the Islamic Republic’s missiles.
“The [Islamic] Revolution’s missiles, [deployed] in north and south [of the country], cover the entire occupied territories,” Major General Mohammad-Ali Ja’fari said on Tuesday.
He said that Iran’s enemies have acknowledged that the Islamic Republic has turned into a major power in the Middle East but they will not stop their animosity toward the country.
In recent years, Iran has made major breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing important military equipment and systems.
Iran has so far designed and manufactured different indigenous missiles, including Khalij-e-Fars (Persian Gulf), Mehrab (Altar), Ra’d (Thunder), Qader (Mighty), Nour (Light) and Zafar (Triumph).
The Islamic Republic has also conducted military drills to enhance the defense capabilities of its military and to test modern military tactics and equipment.
Iran has repeatedly said that its military might poses no threat to other countries, reiterating that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
Iran has, however, pledged a crushing response to aggressors in case of a military attack on the country.
